Upton Noble

C of E VC Primary School

Part of the East Somerset Federation which includes Bruton and Ditcheat Primary Schools

East Somerset Federation

In April 2013 the governing bodies of Upton Noble Church of England Primary VC Primary School and Bruton Primary School federated to become the East Somerset Federation. More recently, in April 2022 we welcomed Ditcheat Primary School to the Federation. All of our schools have long and proud histories in serving our communities. Each school is unique and that is what makes us special.


Our Federation was established with a clear vision of raising aspirations, developing greater opportunities and valuing the diversity of each school. This vision still holds true today as we move forward from our very new beginnings into an exciting future.


The Federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which children can flourish. We offer children the best learning environments, the best teachers and the best support to enable every child to reach their potential.


We really do believe that we work 'better together'.


  • Staff work together - improving practice and developing partnerships;
  • Children work together - improving learning and building relationships;
  • Our budget is brought together - improving resources and best value; and
  • Leadership works together - improving opportunties and outcomes for children.


We are using the Federation to constantly challenge ourselves and each other through the networks we are building between the schools. Learning from each other's strengths and supporting each other with areas for development. We are constantly striving for excellence, securing high levels of achievement and outstanding opportunties for all our children.


This website will give you a good insight into what each school is about and also a glimpse into what we are hoping to achieve.


Don't take our word for it, our children are our best ambassadors come and meet them. They would be delighted to tell you about their school.
